All-Access Pass to Beachbody On Demand Membership!

If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat you probably have seen me SUPER pumped about what is launching TODAY! :) Team Beachbody launched a brand-new option for it’s customers and coaches called the ALL-ACCESS Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack. It’s just crazy to think back to the days of VCRs, renting movies from an actual store, watching TV shows live instead of the recordings and being able to fast-forward through commercials… things have just evolved so much in the last 5-6 years! Now you can just pull up Netflix or Amazon Prime or On Demand and you are good to go right from your couch! 

You might be wondering why I am telling you this…and it’s because times are changing for the fitness  game as well. It is still the same process to getting healthy and feeling your best in that you have to put in the work to get the results and there is no quick fix. But, NOW there are so many more options than ever to have access to the tools that can help you achieve the look and feel you want! Team Beachbody came into my life years ago when it first launched P90X but honestly, I was NOT ready for that intense of a program. After a few years of doing whatever with my workouts (running mostly) I decided to give another program a try called Les Mills Pump and it changed my life. I was a first-time mom with a 1 1/2 year old son, working full-time, and just trying to balance life. I I didn’t think I could ever commit to a program longer than a week and never thought I would be able to find the time to workout each day but I was able to stay committed for the 60 days with the help of my coach and the accountability group I was in. Every day I would either get my workout done before work, while my son napped, or between the mom cracks in the day. I would just walk to my basement, pop in that DVD, and get to work. I found so much support in other mothers that were struggling to lose the baby weight, juggle mom-life, and still have time for themselves. I was forever changed by the relationships I built during that program, my coach, Les Mills Pump, clean eating and Shakeology. I am PROOF that the model of Team Beachbody challenge groups work! :) This is definitely my answer and while it might not be everyone’s preference it truly did and still does work for me and my family. I can’t imagine life any other way!

The cool thing with Beachbody is that they are ALWAYS on their “A” game. They evolve and change with technology and are committed to provide top of the line fitness, nutrition, support and options for our customers to live an active and healthy lifestyle. 

So, last week the CEO of Team Beachbody, Carl Daikeler, announced a NEW option for anyone to take advantage of! The All-Accesss Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack membership which provides total access to EVERY SINGLE program Beachbody has ever made PLUS any future releases. So, that means P90X, TurboFire, Insanity, 10-Minute Trainer, Country Heat, CIZE, 21-Day Fix, 21-Day Fix Extreme, Hammer & Chisel, Body Beast, 22-Minute Hard Corps, Core De Force and so many more PLUS anything new  that comes out for no extra charge for an entire year. Seriously, this is freaking AMAZING!! Starting TODAY (December 27th) you will be able to purchase either an annual membership or the Annual All-Access Beachbody On Demand + Shakeology Challenge Pack. This is an incredible opportunity for me to help you get even better results. 

Why is this so AMAZING?

So, I am going to give you my personal opinion on this brand-new feature that I LOVE:

  • 12-month membership to Beachbody On Demand (BOD) with all content includes, plus future releases
  • Shakeology (choice of 30-day supply on home-direct)
  • Portion Fix Containers (includes 7 piece portion control container system, eating guide, large blue container & shaker cup)
  • Business Starter Kit waived if you choose the coach enrollment option
  • You get ALL of this for $199 for the entire year (12 months) and there is no monthly fee

The points I listed above are worth thousands of dollars and for the 12 months you are getting access to everything that Beachbody has ever created plus anything new throughout your 12-month membership. That is awesome but the real reason I am excited is because of this:

You can purchase this pass and together we can choose to start a program like the 21-Day Fix. You can complete the 21 days of that program, and at the end we can have a discussion on what your next move is. We can talk about your goals, progress made, what you did and didn’t like, and choose your next program that will fit your life at THAT moment. Maybe your schedule changes and you have less time to workout?? BAM - insert 22-Minute Hard Corps that gives you bootcamp style workouts in 22 minutes. Maybe you have your kids home for the summer and need something family-friendly - BAM! Insert Country Heat! A dance-style cardio program ANYONE can do. Maybe you want to amp it up and REALLY give it - BAM! Insanity Max 30 with Shaun T! The key to all of this is  that there are options to help YOU achieve YOUR goals. We can mix, match, tweak and change your plan so that you do not lose steam, get bored, but instead get the results YOU really want. 

Each workout program through BOD has the calendar of workouts to follow to show you what to do and when. They also each include a nutrition guide you can download, tracking sheets and you have ME to help walk you through the program and make sure you are getting the results you want. This is not just about starting and completing 1 program - it’s about moving through each stage of your journey and entering into a lifestyle you can maintain forever. 

I am in LOVE with this option because it gives you flexibility and creativity. But the most important part of this whole thing is the SUPPORT! Sure, anyone can buy a program but where you see most people getting results is when they have a community of support around them helping them and cheering them on! THAT is where the magic truly happens!

I used to be that girl that went to the gym for the first couple weeks of the new year, vowing to stay committed all year round, only to slowly fizzle out and stop going. Letting my gym membership go to waste. I had great intentions and amazing goals, but I had no one there to keep me going or to tell me what to do. It doesn’t matter how awesome the gym membership is if you have no idea what to do while you are there. 

So, make this year YOUR year!! If you are like me and you need structure, support, guidance, and accountability, then Beachbody might be your answer! I didn’t like working out in public, I enjoy my own home space, and I like that I can workout when it works for me around my kid’s schedules (and naps). :)

I am inviting you to take advantage of the All-Access Pass and make me your coach! Let me help you set some new goals to achieve your healthy and happy life! Whether or not you want to be part of my online accountability groups or not I am here to help you.

I am kicking off my next group called the January Jumpstart Health Bet on January 2nd through the Beachbody Challenge Tracker App. You will set realistic and achievable goals, log your workouts, your nutrition and Shakeology daily through our app based program and I will be there 24/7 to provide support, accountability, guidance, recipes and meal planning to make this a lasting lifestyle change. Does this sound like something you would like to do? The click here for all the details.

A Transformation Post on a Wednesday

This transformation post is brought to you by: MOTHERHOOD <3

I came across the picture on the left earlier today and when I did a side-by-side with my most recent pic my jaw dropped. After I had KB I had doubts I would ever get my “abs” back…hell, my body back, but over time and hard work I did… then I had Jordy. I knew it was possible to get my body back but there was this little voice in my head that kept saying I might not. Not for lack of effort, but because our bodies change SO MUCH with each pregnancy. Our skin stretches, we get saggy, and our ab muscles go through the freaking ringer. I mean, I even have stretch marks on my inner thighs from pregnancy…WTF!? I just wasn’t sure if I would ever get back to where I was. 

Well, that pic on the left was taken about 4-5 months after I had Jordy so there is just over a year between the 2 pictures. Am I exactly where I want to be with my physical goals right now? No. Did I eat as healthy as I planned to reach those goals? No. Did I complete every workout and stick to my routine 100%? HELL NO. Because, that’s life.  

As I reflect on this past year with my personal life, my health and my business, I had A LOT of ups and downs. Lots of failures and successes. Lots of letting life get the best of me. Lots of “starting over.” Lots of tears and laughter. But the one thing that held true through all of that was that I just kept going. I didn’t give up. And I am not trying to toot my own horn, because believe me, I could have done WAY better in most areas of my life. But, what I am saying is that no matter what you do, never give up. Always keep moving forward and always keep trying. Even if you are moving at a snail’s pace… even if you take a step forward to take 2 steps back. Even if the direction you are going changes a million times. Every time you move forward and keep going, you are getting closer to your destination. Focus on the good, focus on what you DID do right, and keep going. Then look at all that and try to do better this next year. 

It’s hard not to reflect on this last year as we approach January but if there is one thing I know, and one thing that holds true (for you too), it’s that we can do ANYTHING we put our minds to. Everything that has led us to this exact point has made us stronger and more capable to up our game. 

Look, I didn’t come this far to only come this far. I have some big goals & plans for 2017 and I am aiming for the high. If you have goals you want to reach and need some accountability I am your girl! If not, totally cool! But either way, this bus is heading to the top whether you are on it or not!!

Spinach Artichoke Chicken Pasta with Spaghetti Squash

The one thing I LOVE about meal planning each week is discovering new recipes to try. When I am in a funk and living by the seat of my pants with eating, I tend to eat the same junk over and over again....pizza, tacos, sandwich, pizza, taco, sandwich... the cycle goes on and on until one day I snap back into my senses and start meal planning again. It can be a struggle to get going with it but I PROMISE it's worth the time and effort. Plus, when you make recipes like the one I'm about to share, you are covered for at LEAST 2-3 meals... depends on how many people you have to share it with! ;) The goal is to make things easier during the week when you are busy running from work, to errands, to carting the kids around, back to work...you get the drift. So, having meals like this on hand that you can just portion out into containers and grab and go during the week, makes life MUCH easier! AND you are not spending as much money eating out... AND you are staying on track much better with your nutrition. Sounds like a lot of winning. :)

So, low and behold this AMAZING recipe! Even if you aren't the biggest fan of spaghetti squash you should still try this...all the flavors mix well and I actually could barely tell I was eating spaghetti squash! You could also sub whole wheat noodles, zoodles or even quinoa or rice instead of the squash. Either way, give this a try and let me know what you think!


Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Servings: 6
Spaghetti Squash:
  • 1 large spaghetti squash, cut in half, seeds removed
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • - ½ t. salt
  • - ¼ t. pepper

  • 2 T. olive oil
  • - 1 lb. chicken, cubed
  • - ¾ t. salt
  • - ¼ t. pepper

  • - 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • - 2 T. butter, or olive oil
  • - 2 T. cornstarch
  • - ½ c. milk (or almond milk)
  • - ½ c. chicken broth
  • - 3 T. cream cheese
  • - 1/3 c. Greek yogurt
  • - 1-15-oz. can artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
  • - 2 c. fresh spinach, packed
  • - 1/2 - 1 c. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • - Parsley, fresh (optional)
  • - Parmesan cheese (optional)


For the Spaghetti Squash:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut one large spaghetti squash in half, lengthwise. Discard seeds.
  3. Drizzle 1 T. olive oil in each half of the squash and sprinkle with equal amounts salt and pepper.
  4. Place, face-down, on a parchment paper or aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.
  5. Roast squash in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until squash is tender and shreds easily with a fork.
  6. For the Chicken:
  7. Drizzle 2 T. olive oil in a large skillet. Place cubed chicken, salt and pepper into skillet and cook over medium heat for 6-8 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
  8. Remove chicken and set aside.
  9. For the Sauce:
  10. Once chicken is removed, in the same skillet place butter and garlic. Saute for 1-2 minutes or until garlic is golden brown.
  11. Add cornstarch to the butter and garlic and reduce heat to low. Whisk until a thick paste forms. 
  12. Slowly add milk and chicken broth over the course of 3-5 minutes, stirring constantly. 
  13. Add cream cheese and Greek yogurt. Stir to combine.
  14. Add artichoke hearts and spinach. Stir to combine and let simmer for 3-5 minutes.
  15. Add chicken and let heat through for an additional 5 minutes.

For the Assembly:

  1. Once spaghetti squash halves are done baking, remove from oven and shred insides with a fork to form spaghetti “noodles.”
  2. Fill each half with equal parts of the spinach artichoke and chicken mixture, making sure to pull up the noodles so the sauce spreads out evenly.
  3. Top both halves with equal amounts of Mozzarella cheese. 
  4. Set oven to High Broil.
  5. Broil spaghetti squash halves for 3-5 minutes, or until cheese just starts to bubble and turns a light golden brown.
  6. Top stuffed spaghetti squash halves with parsley and Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!

Core De Force - Week 1 Recap & Week 2 Meal Plan

I am SO excited to share with you my recap of my first week doing Core De Force! First of all, I.am.sore. Leading up to starting this program I was doing Hammer & Chisel, running, and even adding in some Insanity Max 30 workouts from time to time, but this workout managed to find muscles that I never even knew existed and turn them into it's b*tch. :) I have been slamming recovery more than ever and have noticed results much faster than any other program I have done so far. So, in other words, I LOVE THIS PROGRAM!!

First things first - the workouts! I decided to make a video recap of each day this last week to not only to show you what these workouts are like, but to also track my progress. I am not going to lie - the first couple days doing these moves..... I felt super uncoordinated. Which is actually nothing new for me, but there were times I just sat there staring at the screen thinking, "huh?" There are short instruction videos before each workout breaking down the moves before you start so you know what you are doing but I am totally the type that likes to wing things and just jumped right in....So, maybe don't be like me and watch that instruction video before you start... ;)

Here is Day 1 - MMA Speed

Day 2 - Dynamic Strength

Day 3 - MMA Speed

Day 4 - Power Sculpt

Day 5 - MMA Shred

Day 6 - Dynamic Strength

Day 7 - Active Recovery

I have to say, my mindset was FINALLY in the right place to start this program. I took time last Sunday/Monday to plan my meals, snacks, workouts, etc for the entire week and I stayed on track the best I have in MONTHS. It's amazing what a little meal planning can do! So, with the success I had from last week I decided to not get cocky, and do it all over again this week! Here is my week 2 meal plan:

The entire Core De Force nutrition plan is exactly like the 21-Day Fix meal plan, with one exception: Each week is a little different depending on the intensity of where we are with our workouts. This basically helps fuel our bodies properly but also keep our bodies guessing. So, week 1 I followed Plan A (1200-1400 calories), which is the plan I will be following for the full 30 days. The only difference is during week 2 I get to add an extra serving of fruit which I will be adding to my Shakeology in the morning. Here is a breakdown of how the nutrition plans work:

To figure out how many calories you need and which plan you fall under you would take (Your Weight in lbs) x 11 = (Calorie Starting Point). Then, take your (Calorie Starting Point) + 400 (Your Calorie Burn) = (Maintenance Calories). Then, take your (Maintenance Calories) - 750 (Caloric Deficit) = (Your Calorie Target). Now, you would use Your Calorie Target to choose a plan above. 

Even though I am officially starting week 2 of this program TODAY, my Core De Force Launch Group is starting their week 1! I am so excited for the women in my group because there is just something empowering about doing this program! Not only do you get to literally PUNCH out any stresses you have going on, you get in an awesome workout that makes you feel badass, AND you shed pounds and inches while doing so. The workouts fly by because they are fun and unlike any other workout program out there. Here is a recap of my results after just ONE week of Core De Force!

Welp, if you haven't been able to tell by now, I LOVE THIS PROGRAM! I think it's perfect for people that are getting bored with their typical fitness routine. If you are stressed - PUNCH it out! If you are in a plateau - FIGHT through it! If you want to feel empowered - KICK the day in the face! 

For real though, between all the kicks, punches, MMA moves, energy and SWEAT that comes from this workout, I have no doubt that it's effective. In my first week, well actually first 3 days I dropped 4 pounds just from the workouts and following the meal plan. And the kicker is, that by following the meal plan I was eating way more than before when I was just winging things. I actually had a hard time getting all my meals in because I was FULL from eating every 2-3 hours. Less spikes in hunger meant less grabbing junk for me, which is where I tend to struggle. I also struggle with late night snacking...like 9/9:30pm right before bedtime. That was probably the only time I struggled with this program so far but after the first few days those late night cravings went away. Overall, for my first week I am pretty proud of myself. I didn't miss a workout, I stuck to my meal plan about 85-90% of the time, and got over my late night snacking. 

So, here's to week 2! If you missed my previous blog post where I explained more about this program, shared before and afters from the coach test group, and more check it out here

Core De Force - Day 1 + Week 1 Meal Plan

First off, I cannot believe I am officially starting Core De Force this week!!! I have been anticipating and anxiously waiting for this program to come out since Beachbody's Summit last July in Nashville...so that's like 4 months of torture!! ;) 

My love for Core De Force stems from the first ever program I completed, Les Mills Pump, because the trainers that created that program created Core De Force. When I found that out I was immediately game for this program and knew it would NOT disappoint! And after day 1 today, I can honestly say that this program will be a game-changer! Why? Well, because its completely different than any other program I have done (and I have done A LOT), the workouts don't re
quire any equipment and are 30-45 minutes long, they make you feel like a BADASS, AND the meal plan is easy-peasy. It's actually the same meal plan that is used in the 21-Day Fix, which means it's simple, convenient, and fool-proof. Speaking of meal plans, here is one I put together for this week:

Now, I am not one to be too picky when it comes to variation in my meals so I typically will make 2-3 new recipes per week and use them for breakfast, lunch and dinner (I just swap them around) and fill in snacks with whatever floats my boat that week. This meal plan follows the container system from the 21-Day Fix so I don't have to count calories or anything like that. Basically, as long as you eat clean food (non-processed) you can do this meal plan, no problem. One of the meals I tried for the first time today is the sweet potato black bean burgers and they were AMAZING!! Honestly, I didn't even like sweet potatoes a year ago and today I inhaled these burgers like it was my last meal ever. SO GOOD!!! I topped my burgers with salsa instead of my normal 30 packets of ketchup and I was still loving them... so that says A LOT. Anyway, here is the recipe for those burgers!

If you haven't tried Lime-Cherry La Croix water DO IT NOW!!! :)

Serves: 12
  • 2 cups mashed sweet potato (~2 large sweet potatoes - organic when possible)
  • 1 cup cooked salted black beans, rinsed and well drained (if unsalted, add more salt to the burgers)
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice* (or sub cooked quinoa with varied results)
  • 1/2 cup walnut or pecan meal (or very finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup finely diced green onion
  • 2 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle powder (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar (optional | for added sweetness)
  • Sliced avocado
  • Sprouts, lettuce or parsley
  • Sliced onion
** I skipped all of that and just used salsa :)

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and cut sweet potatoes in half. Rub with olive oil and place face down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake sweet potatoes until soft and tender to the touch - about 30 minutes - set aside. Reduce oven heat to 375 degrees F.
  2. While potatoes are baking, cook rice or quinoa (see notes for instructions).
  3. Add black beans to a mixing bowl and mash half of them for texture. Then add sweet potato and lightly mash, then 1 cup rice, green onion, nut meal and spices. Mix to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Add more rice or nut meal if the mixture feels too wet. It should be very moist but moldable.
  4. Lightly grease a baking sheet and line a 1/4 cup measuring cup with plastic wrap.
  5. Fill the lined measuring cup with sweet potato mixture. Scrape down to pack, then lift out and transfer to the baking sheet and gently press down to mash. The thinner you press them, the faster they’ll cook, but no need to go too far. Just a gentle press will do.
  6. Bake burgers for a total 30-45 minutes, carefully flipping 20 minutes in to ensure even cooking. The longer you bake them the firmer and drier they will get - up to preference. I went for around the 35 minute mark.
  7. Serve on slider buns (double stack for more bulk) or atop a salad with sliced avocado, red onion, greens, and ketchup or salsa.
  8. Store leftovers covered in the fridge for up to a few days. Freeze for longer term storage.

* To cook rice: bring 2 cups water to a boil, then add 1 cup very well-rinsed rice, reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook for about 30 minutes or until fluffy and tender. You will have leftovers. 

* For quinoa: rinse 1 cup quinoa and add to a saucepan over medium heat. Sauté in a bit of olive oil for 1-2 minutes, then add 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cover and continue cooking for about 15 minutes, or until tender and fluffy and the water is absorbed.


So, now that I have discovered the most delicious, clean-eating, HEALTHY recipe, for a burger I will probably have this in my rotation at least a couple weeks out of the month. :)

Now, onto the day 1 workout - HOLY MAN!! Today's workout was "MMA Speed" and it was TOUGH! I pushed myself as much as I could for the 27 minutes and afterwards was a sweaty mess! I was actually a little frustrated though because our internet decided to take a crap and stop working about 10 minutes into my workout (I was streaming it from BOD) and after about 10 minutes of messing with it I decided to take my frustrations outside and go for a run. Living in Wisconsin, our November weather is normally NOT 60 degrees in November so I took advantage and got in a 5K. By the time I got back my internet was back in action and I finished up day 1. Not exactly what I had planned but when there's a will, there's a way! I have declared this month "No Excuses November" so I stuck to my plan and made it happen! #poundit 

Here is a little recap of today's workout:

I am not gonna lie, I am pretty determined to get through this program 100% committed...even with the meal plan. I haven't felt this way since Les Mills Pump and back when I completed that program I got into the best shape of my life. So, needless to say, I am SUPER PUMPED to start day 2 tomorrow! Do you want to join me in this excitement? Do you want to kick your excuses to the curb this month and join a group of supportive women that will help you kick ass and stay accountable? If so, there is still time to join my Launch Group! Just fill out the application below and I will contact you:

Beachbody's NEWEST Workout program - CORE DE FORCE - Launches TODAY!

I have been keeping a secret for WAY too long and today I FINALLY get to spill the beans!!

About 2 1/2 years ago I fell in LOVE with home workout programs after losing the last of the weight I had gained while pregnant with my son. I was using a program called Les Mills Pump (Body Pump) and loved how easy and convenient working out from home was! Since then I have completed numerous programs but have always missed my PUMP and the trainers from that program. Well, lucky for me because Beachbody is launching a NEW program TODAY with Joel and Jericho, two trainers from Les Mills Pump, called CORE DE FORCE!! This program is a 30-day TOTAL BODY TRANSFORMATION program that will totally rock your world! The best part (and one of the main reasons I love our at-home workout programs) is that the only equipment you will need is your own body! And with Beachbody On Demand,  you have the option to stream  your workouts to  your iPad, iPhone, laptop... to take your workouts ANYWHERE!

Core De Force is an MMA-inspired program which includes 3-minute "rounds" where you will get boxing, kickboxing and Muay Thai, knee-elbow combinations, bodyweight training, and cardio spikes that will help you LOSE belly fat and shred your body from head to toe. If you can focus on hitting it hard for 3 minutes at a time, before you know it, the workout will be over!

I had the opportunity to try a sneak peak of Core De Force a couple weeks ago and I absolutely LOVED it! You will definitely SWEAT, you will be SORE (especially my "love handle" areas) and you will get RESULTS! Maybe I am crazy, but even after a day I felt "tighter" and more toned.  Here is a little clip from my sneak peek!

Check out all the details here if you are ready to change up your workout, break through a plateau, get started with your transformation, or hold yourself accountable over the holidays. We are going to be hosting a PRIVATE launch group for people who are ready to join me in this 30 day program!

Are you ready to transform your body? ** APPLY HERE!! **

What is Core De Force?

Core De Force is your 3-day countdown to a total body transformation. This workout was created by Joel Freeman and Jericho McMatthews, and is the ultimate mixed martial arts-inspired workout that is going to really knock off the belly fat, get rid of inches, and tone and tighten your entire body without any equipment. 

I LOVE this program because in every workout there is a "learn it & work it" section that breaks down all the moves so you can learn them before you do the workout. So, if you are new to MMA-style exercises (or a little uncoordinated like me!) this will give you the confidence to go right in and kick some ass! Core De Force is also not on a beat or rhythm, so you do not have to follow a specific routine, per se. There are also modifiers in every single workout so no matter what your ability level is, you can go at your own pace. As you get stronger the goal is to challenge yourself with higher intensity and increased focus. 

I also like that there is no equipment need but yourself. This is key for those that are budget conscious, don't have a lot of room to workout, or are traveling and have to workout in smaller spaces like a hotel room. 

Core De Force takes the barriers away to getting started on your health and fitness journey because it's an EASY, SIMPLE to follow program that all you really have to do is show up and PRESS PLAY on the workout of the day! My goal as your coach is to EMPOWER You and give you CONFIDENCE to make necessary changes so that you can live a HEALTHY and FULFILLING life! Oh, and also so that you realize how much of a BADASS you really are! ;)
Who is Core De Force For?
Core De Force is for EVERYONE! Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or at an advanced level in your fitness you can do this workout. This program has a modifier so you can go at your own pace and push yourself according to your level of fitness. You will enjoy the challenge of taking the intensity higher to improve your cardio strength, speed and endurance. Each MMA-inspired workout has an optional moved breakdown to help you get familiar with the combinations. Core De Force also focused on rotational moves, which means you will work your core from 360 degrees every time you press play. That is going to be AMAZING for those of us (ME!!) who really want to tone that trouble area!

What is the Eating Plan Like?
The nutrition guide was created to include simple, clean foods, that you can easily measure out and combine to give yourself a well-balanced nutrition plan that will fuel your body with the energy it needs to crush the next workout on the schedule, and get the results you want. If you really want to know what this program can do for your body make sure that you are 100% committed to the nutrition plan because what you eat is 80% of the results you will get. 
The nutrition plan follows the portion fix (portion-controlled nutrition plan created by Autumn Calabrese, creator of the 21-Day Fix), but you will not receive another set of containers unless you want them! Each food category is measured out and explained in detail to you. The plan is meant to be SUPER EASY to follow so that you don't get overwhelmed with too many options. Plus, in the launch group I am hosting I will be walking you through the entire nutrition plan as well.

How Much Does it Cost?
Core De Force has a variety of options. The one that I recommend the most is the Core De Force Challenge Pack because it comes with everything you need to be successful with this program. The challenge pack includes the entire Core De Force workout program, nutrition guide, program manual, Shakeology, access to me as your coach, discounted prices and shipping, plus it gives you entrance into my Launch Group where I will be personally walking you through the nutrition guide, helping you to create a food plan that meets your needs, giving you recipes, tips, and daily accountability so that this program does not become just another dust collector on your shelf.
The Challenge Pack is $140 on SALE starting TODAY (10/31) through November 2016.

How Can I Get Involved in My Support & Accountability Group?
So, now HERE is the most important part! How do I REALLY succeed at this program? Well, anyone can go out there and buy the Core De Force Challenge Pack and do the workouts. Unfortunately, I have seen many times (I was also guilty of this) where we purchase a program with the best intentions and before we know it. the workout is sitting on a shelf, collecting dust, and we make excuses for why we don't have time or say it isn't the right time. So, don't let this be another program that you have good intentions with! It's time to take charge of your fitness and nutrition and get involved in a closed online community of support that is going to help you start and complete the program AND get the RESULTS you want in time for the holidays. Better yet, we are going to help you create a holiday plan that is going to give you the flexibility to enjoy the holiday foods you want to eat but still get results.
Do You Want to Join? Here are the requirements and how you can get started:
  • In my Launch Group I am going to be requiring that everyone participates for the entire 30 days of the program starting on November 7th. Each participant must have ME as their assigned coach. You cannot already be working with another coach or be a coach yourself. 
  • You must commit to both the fitness program and Shakeology to join the group. You will be getting everything you need for this group when you sign up with me.
  • You must be willing to participate daily in the closed online group. I will have you log your workouts, your daily food activity and provide you with tools, tips and recipes to help you reach your goals. 
  • You must be willing to give it your ALL! Change is not always easy, but it is totally worth it!
There will never ever be a perfect time to start your health and fitness transformation. You will always be busy, have last-minute things that come up, trips to go on, parties to plan, and life will always give you the unexpected. You literally just have to take that leap of faith, bite the bullet, and go for it. If you do not try, how will you ever know if you can succeed? This just might be that ONE TIME where everything comes together and just finally makes sense to YOU and your lifestyle. <3
